Will an upgrade to Windows 10 on a dual-boot system mess GRUB up?

Filed under
Linux
Microsoft

If the setup is on a computer with UEFI firmware, with the boot files of all systems on the EFI Boot Partition, then I don’t see anything that will mess GRUB up during or after upgrading to Windows 10. That’s because the EFI Boot Partition is like a public park, where the space occupied by each operating system’s boot files is respected. So the Windows 10 upgrade script will only update the files and directory that pertains to the Windows boot manager. That this is true has been verified by none other than a Microsoft employee in this blog post.

The same goes with the upgrade script of the installed Linux distribution(s), but you knew that already.

It’s claimed to be the first to offer full compatibility with the Pi’s HAT (Hardware Attached on Top) add-on card standard.
